Our Open Air Wrap is a familiar favorite, but it undergoes a splendid reinvention when paired with our gorgeous new Tussock!

This wrap may look as diaphanous as floating mist, but don’t be fooled…It’s really a halo of soft and cozy warmth. Tussock is 60% super fine kid mohair and 40% silk, a blend that insulates with a feather-light touch and a lovely luster.

You’ll quickly master the Open Air Wrap’s super-simple one-row repeat of open lacework. Yup, just repeat one row and watch it grow into a fabric that’s part fine filigree, part fluffy down.

Choose from 17 beautiful colors of Tussock. We used three skeins of Bright Verdigris, a crisp reflection of the icy season, but you may want to pick a few of your favorites, because this version of our Open Air Wrap is especially fun to share… A real wow-you-made-this? kind of gift!
